Skins & Pins, Vol. II

Various Artists

GMM

Atlanta’s GMM has hit a homerun worthy of Chief Nokahoma with this one. Call it streetpunk or Oi, this is some of the best of the genre collected, including lots of GMM artists but lots of others as well. Big names like Dropkick Murphys, Agnostic Front (covering “Nobody’s Heroes” by Stiff Little Fingers), Anti Heroes (unfortunately represented here by the maudlin “Sunset Unlimited,” one of the weaker cuts from the album it was culled from), and Templars. With the exception of the usual couple of cuts apparently (no lyric sheet) glorifying violence, this is good stuff.

Rifling through a boxful of ravaged old records, Christopher Long locates a flea market LP copy of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils Don’t Look Down — for a quarter — and speaks with the band’s co-founding bassist, Michael “Supe” Granda, about his amazing discovery.

Henry V

Henry V

Archikulture Digest

Blood, guts, and kicking butt in France — it’s the age-old story of Shakespeare. Carl F. Gauze once again enjoys the salacious violence and complicated plot points of Henry V, in the moody dark of Orlando Shakes.
